Corporate English Speaking Lawyers in Greece
Our team of corporate English Speaking Lawyers will assist you from the beginning by providing the appropriate business plan in order to achieve 100% of your initial business scope, by setting up the right form of business. We can also prepare all the required internal operational agreements, as well as to manage the whole process of mergers and acquisitions, but also by representing the clients as best as possible at various levels of their business interests.
Why to Open Business in Greece?
Greece is one of the countries that is currently receiving a huge inflow of investments because it has currently managed to incorporate significant changes both for the formation of companies, but also for the acceleration of internal business processes.
Thus, a new special form of Societe Anonyme has been established, “Private Company”, which can be established very soon and only electronically, having only € 1 as required capital.
However, apart from the establishment of companies, almost all transactions of entrepreneurs and companies with the local competent chambers, tax authorities and insurance organizations have been smoothed and changed to electronic means, making the whole process much easier, more attractive. and not at all time consuming.
On this new platform, we are all very familiar with these new services and we are available 24/7 to support and assist our clients in their business plans.

We can assist clients on selecting the most appropriate company structures and set-up companies, branches and joint ventures. Our support can range from drafting shareholders’ agreements and Articles of Association, to issuing and obtaining tax registration numbers for overseas founders/shareholders and completing the necessary process for opening bank accounts.The main purpose is to support a company wherever it is located in the world, in case it wishes to establish a subsidiary or branch in Greece. Also, we can provide tax representative services for companies only for VAT purposes (without the need for a permanent establishment in Greece).

The existence of a tax representative in Greece is a necessary condition for the correct formation of a corporate structure.

Especially in the current era, where the largest volume of investments is concentrated in Greece, the team of Lexidy can conduct a thorough due diligence investigation on behalf of our clients, which includes the detailed diagnosis, examination, research, analysis, review of all those elements of the company, which are deemed as necessary in case of entry of investors, full acquisition,or merger, but also in case that one of the partners or shareholders wishes to conduct a detailed audit of the participating company.
